Today on DelmarvaLife –
Even in the darkest of days, when all we feel is the weight of the world, hope manages to float to the surface.

Who doesn’t love new? Well, we’re starting a new segment on DelmarvaLife, “Wellness Wednesdays” in partner with the Worcester County Health Department. The health department has a number of great partnerships with the community — all relating to one thing: helping folks recover from addiction. So, starting this week, every Wednesday, we’ll be highlighting different aspects of these partnerships and how they’re benefiting people in need.
The joys of car shopping…what car maker do I choose? What model, what kind of car, what make? Then all those financing options…the warranties, the insurance. Safe to say, it can all get a little overwhelming. But, if there’s someone to help navigate you — someone you trust, someone who is your neighbor — that can make car shopping much easier. Today, we have the perfect fit. His name is Kevin Miller and he’s at Gateway Subaru in Delmar. Lisa recently visited to learn all about Kevin.

COVID has certainly caused a disruption in local events. But, we’re happy to say that one local event, was one of the most successful ever.

Despite the fierce competition, the grand champion winner is from right here on Delmarva. Today, we talk with Margaret Udinski of Ocean View, to find out about her winning photo.
